What winter activities come to mind? For me, it is ice skating.As a kid I spent most Pennsylvania winters on ice. I was pretty good too with figure skates but put hockey skates or roller skates on me and BAM, on I was on the ground.Our collage # 719 Ice Ballet is such a wonderful collection of poised skaters. Included are Italian, French, and more.
I have had a galvanized cigar tin for ages and finally figured it was time to do something with it.
Shimmering iciness will adorn it along with branches like the trees surrounding the pond we skated on in the woods, hidden away and sort of secret.
I first used a bit of sandpaper to rough up the areas I would be gluing with my PPA glue. Then I applied lace from our lace packs and some ribbon from my stash that had a shimmer and a bluish purple cast, just like winter!
Next came the images from the collage, it was really hard to decide on which ones, as they are all so lovely. I added one on the back too. Using my KAI Scissors makes cutting so sure and easy. I embossed the edges and used a holographic powder to feel like a wintery chill.
I echoed the ribbon and lace for an accent on the handle and sparkled the image up a bit with some carefully placed Icicle Stickles.
The final steps are to coat short branches and Petaloo flowers with the sparkling glitter that looks like ice and then insert branches and shimmery tulle.
Sure hope this took you back to your childhood days of winter fun.
